It is expected that at 8 knots people on board should have a feeling as to stay on a sailing yacht. Last but not least, there is a drastically improvement of the redundancy. If the generators set fails, two shaft generators will operate the electric users; if the main engines fail, the two generators can power the propellers.

A further exceptional element is her fully custom-made bridge. ISA in-house electronic department coordinates a panel of important names in the field of electronic navigation systems, such as Transas, which made the bridge concept, Team Italia, which designed the bridge console and Rolls-Royce, which provides the custom-made waterjets control system. The result is a highly technological pioneering bridge, second to no other in terms of customisation and integration, always in full compliance with safety regulation.

The ISA 140 series produces the company’s largest semi-custom superyachts of composite construction with hull and superstructure built from Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP). The composite parts of ISA 140, such as the hull, the deck, the superstructure and the accessories, have been built with vacuum assisted resin infusion (VARTM).

In particular, the hull is one of the biggest one ever made on a single mould and at one go. The result is a product with superior features in terms of lightness and stiffness, compared to the boats of the same category made with traditional techniques.
